Sleeping Freshmen Never Lie

Sleeping Freshmen Never Lie

by David Lubar
Freaks and bullies, classes and crushes. This is high school, and it is never ever easy. Seniors take lunch money, girls are suddenly beautiful and unattainable, and there's never enough sleep. Could there be a worse time for Scott's mother to announce she's pregnant?

Scott decides high school would be a lot less overwhelming if it came with a survival manual, so he begins to write down tips for his new sibling. Meanwhile, he's trying his best to capture the attention of Julia, the freshman goddess. In the process, Scott manages to become involved in nearly everything the school has to offer. So while he tries to find his place in the confusing world of high school, win Julia's heart, and keep his sanity, Scott will be recording all the details for his sibling's enjoyment, and telling the hilarious, page-turning story of his life.
